Iowa State Residence Life policy could have caused serious injury last week when paramedics could not reach a student with heart attack symptoms.
Keith Twombley was experiencing heart-attack symptoms Tuesday night and residents on the floor called for an ambulance. The Iowa State University Police confirmed a call was received at 10:05 Tuesday night.
When the ambulance arrived, paramedics could not get into the building because of a locked exterior door, ISU officials said.
The Department of Public Safety officer on duty did not have a key to get into the residence hall. He could not get in to the building and had to call a resident assistant, officials said.
University of Missouri
For one University of Missouri student, laundry costs were just too high.
Freshman Mark Nanneman was arrested Thursday on suspicion of vandalizing university laundry machines. He was charged with one count of felony property damage and one misdemeanor count of theft, MU Police Department Capt. Brian Weimer said.
The university's loss was not significant, said John Humlicek, associate director of Residential Life for facilities operations. All individual larceny and vandalism costs fell under $150 in four separate police reports.
Although some students took advantage of the reprogrammed machines and did their laundry for free, Humlicek said little money was lost in the process.
Bans on fans
University of Colorado
Because of a fight last Wednesday following the University of Colorado's upset basketball win over Oklahoma State University, CU has unveiled a new policy that prohibits fans from rushing onto the basketball court after games.
A CU press release states that because fans have rushed the court four times this year following big wins, university and athletic officials had to create the new policy.
"The new policy states that fans are not permitted on the court at any time, and anyone attempting to rush the floor during or following games may be subject to disciplinary action and/or criminal charges," said the press release.
Video surveillance will also be used as possible future reference.
